We are a group of friends who decided to associate in order to join our different hostels and make one same and unique home for travelers sharing the same values and principle all around Mexico: always fun, a lot of love (especially for nature) and only good vibes.
Originally implanted on the Caribbean coast with our Chill Inn Hostel in Tulum, we fall in love with the Pacific coast and the previous Akadia Hostel located in Playa Zicatela. Akadia means Paradise in the old Mayan language, and as this quite well represented our motto, we decided to create a new hostel: Chill In Akadia Hostel was born.
In February 2020 we decided to create this new house for travelers, backpackers and all the other original life-lovers, and this is why we now need the help from motivated people to help us construct our project.
The help required covers a wide range of skills: we need persons for repairing and re-accommodating the hostel, which includes painting, deep cleaning, working with wood and other natural/recycled materials, manual works, etc. We also need help for the basic hostel work: reception, cleaning, tending beds, etc. As the hostel is new, internet and marketing skills would particularly be appreciated, in order to help us out with the administration and the accounts of the hostel, and also with the communication aspect through fb, Instagram, etc. Last, but not least, we are nature lovers limited by financial resources to be really able to create an eco-project, but this doesn’t mean that we won’t do anything about it! Therefore, we need help and initiatives to make our hostel as green as possible (without any greenwashing): ideas to improve waste sorting and recycling, organization to use less plastic, waste water treatments, etc. None of us is an expert in these technical fields, but some of you are, and if you are passing through Puerto Escondido, you are welcome at our hostel!
We are normally working on a basis of 4h/day, with 1 day off in the week. You get the accomodation and we generally cook all together.
If you like our project, you are welcome in our Backpacker's home!
